PDF The Fall ì Guillermo del Toro
Ustler who forges a gang alliance based on vampire killing Throw in a pest control expert and a former Mexican wrestling star and you ve got your motley crew ready to do battle with the undeadI ve liked several of Del Toro s movies and I was impressed with Hogan s work in The Town But "despite a large scale story about a vampire apocalypse going on "a large scale story about a vampire apocalypse going on tons of action the whole thing seems curiously listless to me It just never comes alive and gets me wrapped
Up In The Story in the story of the problem is that the whole thing feels like a collection of things I ve seen before Del Toro Dragonsbane has felt free to swipe whole sections ofis own movies like Mimic and Blade II with the descriptions of underground New York and the nature of the vampires Plus Joss Whedon used the Master concept and name for Lonestar Sanctuary his main vampire villain on the first season of Buffy Andaving one of the primary villains be a rich old guy selling out Trust Me, I'm Lying: Confessions of a Media Manipulator humanity for immortality doesn t seem particularly fresh either Sadly instead of trying to build up any trueorror by creating characters you care about and then Understanding the Black Economy and Black Money in India having bad thingsappen to them the book just throws vamp attack after vamp attack at these cardboard cutout Desperate (Bad Baker Boys, heroes and then tries to milk a little sentiment with a few dead wives turned bloodsuckers sprinkled in I almost think that Del Toro just grabbed some old storyboards from some ofis movies threw them to Chuck Hogan and said Just write that up We ll make a fortune It s not a terrible book I ve certainly read far worse But I was expecting a lot from two talented guys and so far it seems like they ve just been going through the motion.

review á PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Ò Guillermo del ToroWow Just wow I wanted "To Give This 5 Stars "give this 5 stars the ending is powerful But I only gave The Strain 4 stars and this isn t better overall The ending of this book is much better but The Strain is better from cover to cover despite its own Actual rating 25 starsIn my review of The Strain the first book in this series I said that it started off well but uickly degenerated into an illogical mess The Fall is the second book in what is planned to be a trilogy and it starts in the
illogical mess phase Where does it go from there Into an extended setupmess phase Where does it go from there Into an extended setup volume At first this seemed like one colossal boner reading a book upon which the series I just finished watching is based BUT there were enough differences some major to keep things interestingThere is much I love ere big ugly NASTY vampires the way vampires are meant to be And no fangs are necessary they ave disgusting eel like appendages that shoot out dispensing vile infectious worms into the victims they are feeding from YuckI also love the urban setting for this series The cramped tenements streets bordered on two sides by tall buildings and dark scary subways only add to the creepinessAND most of all and pretty unusual in a book of this type the characters creepinessAND most of all and pretty unusual in a book of this type the characters interesting AND intelligent Now my dilemma is whether or not to go ahead and read the last book in the series or share the surprises with the rest of the family when the series returns next year 35 starsI liked this second entry in The Strain series This is the first book I ve listened to narrated by Daniel Oreskes and e was fantastic I was worried that it would affect my enjoyment listenin.
